What is CBD?

CBD or cannabidiol is one cannabinoid compound (out of 100+ cannabinoids) extracted from a plant in the Cannabis genus group. Also called a phytocannabinoid, CBD is created by the cannabis plant naturally. Most people are familiar with CBD being found in marijuana, but certain strains of hemp actually have higher concentrations of available CBD for extraction, hence the term hemp-based, or hemp-derived CBD. Due to the higher yield of CBD per hemp plant, it is the preferred version for CBD isolate. Note that there is no difference between hemp-derived CBD or marijuana-derived CBD.

What is CBD isolate?

CBD isolate is a term used for pure CBD crystals that have been extracted from the plant source. This is the purest form of CBD possible and effectively isolated from the rest of the plant compounds. Pure CBD isolate is a crystalline structure of 99% (or +99%) CBD powder. The reason the term "100%" is not used is due to the limitations and tolerances of current testing machinery. But for all intents and purposes, 99% or +99% CBD isolate is as pure as you can find.
